What is leasing?
Leasing is like a long-term rental where you pay a fixed monthly payment to drive the vehicle for a predetermined period of time. Leasing allows you to own and use a car for a set amount of time without paying the full price.
Is it possible to buy the car at the end of the lease?
Only if the contract provides an option at the end of the lease, otherwise the car must be returned to the dealer at the end of the contract. This option should be discussed directly with the dealer.
What documents do I need to request a leasing?
You must provide proof of identity (Permit B or C for foreigners) and proof of solvency (salary certificates). See the other conditions.
Can I get a lease if I am in arrears?
You may be refused a lease if you are being sued or have outstanding unpaid debts. However, if you have previously been in arrears but everything is now in order, you can contact our team and we will work with you to find a financing solution.
